Mobile Social Gaming Platform Mobage Hits the U.S. Market


Tokyo based company DeNA and its American subsidiary Ngmoco recently announced the release of Mobage to the Android Market. Mobage is a mobile social gaming platform that has seen tremendous success in Japan, netting around 1.3 billion dollars. Last August DeNA took steps to expand their successful platform to the western world by purchasing San Francisco based gaming publisher Ngmoco. Mobage is going to have an uphill battle here in the U.S. as they compete against powerhouses such as OpenFeint for mobile social gaming supremacy.

Mobage is currently available in the Android Market and allows users to play free games and interact with almost 25 million global users. Users can share scores, compete and chat all from within the game. As of right now Mobage is offering around 20 free titles to play with more than 100 titles currently in development. I perused over the list of current games and it wasn’t really that great of a selection so I hope they step it up soon, especially if they plan on having people use their service.

If you’re interested in Mobage and its offerings, just follow the link below to download it from the Android Market.

      Apparently that link is no longer good. I updated the link to the only Mobage app I could find, which seems to only support Samsung devices? I found a list of compatible devices on Mobage’s website but they don’t really provide much information. Here’s the link to the supported devices: http://support.mobage.com/kbarticle?lang=en_US&id=kA0C00000008Tjv
